Ontario is closing elementary and secondary schools and moving to remote learning following this week’s break.
All publicly funded and private schools in the province are moving to teacher-led remote learning when students return on April 19. Private schools operating in-person this week are to transition by April 15. Before and after school programs will be closed, but childcare for non-school aged children will remain open. Free emergency childcare for the school-aged children of eligible health care and frontline workers will be provided.
The province says ongoing assessment by health officials will be used to determine when in-person learning will resume. For more information, see the government’s news release.
